LOTD || Morphe 35M Boss Mood palette

HI Loves,

It feels like it’s been forever since I incorporated a makeup look on my blog, but today that changes! I’m in absolute awe of Morphe, they just give me everything I want in makeup, they consist of pigment, brushes, and best of all great prices; like what more can you ask for. Recently I was able to get their old but new 35m Boss Mood palette for $10 during Ulta’s 25 day Christmas countdown, now normally I don’t really partake in this event, but I was in need of some much needed makeup retail therapy. The Boss Mood palette consist of 35 shades from neon green to the blackest of black. I love their collection of shades; the shimmer shades are pigmented AF, and relatively smooth in texture, they glide on the lid so easily and pick up real nice. The other matte shades are really gorgeous, they have a variety of shades neon, army, berry, reds; the only color the palette need was a pink to be damn near perfect.

Anyhow I did create this purple/cranberry look using just about all the purple tones and a few hints of reds. I hope you enjoyed this very minimal post, I’ll be back with more Makeup MOndays!!

Trend Report // Animal Print

Hi Loves.

Animal Print! I feel like of all the trends, colors, and patterns that have come forward in fashion, animal print has evolved the most. I feel like in fashion we have a tendency to look at floral and pastels as a spring trend, and plaids to be fall pattern, but animal print stands out as its own independent print— this print is an all year round print that transcends versatility. (This is a PSA to go ahead and buy more of these fierce prints, it’ll do your closet justice).

Animal Print is a necessity to your closet, like enough is never enough with this pattern. Animal prints come in shades, colors, stripes & spots—offering versatility and neutrality to any look you deem wearable. Michael Kors, Versace, Dolce & Gabbana, and many more have made animal print their “Bitch” when it comes to imprinting their signature style on fashion. Once upon a time, animal print was considered trashy; but I think the term critiques were looking for was “Fierce” because who doesn’t feel empowered wearing stripes of a tiger, and spots of a cheetah. Understanding this print has always been controversial but made to turn heads and give you that {*INSERT FINGER WAG*} yassss appeal.

I know for a fact that we all had that whether it was your mom or aunty that wore animal print head to toe; and when they came around you would joke or ask, “what are you wearing” (I have a few of them in the family) but as you got older, you see that the cheetah print blouse, or leopard scarf is hella chic. This print has been worn for generations and have become a gem in the world of fashion. From downtown to Uptown, New York to Jersey, loud to simple; the unequivocal print plays at all mediums and can capture the essence of different volumes, this print is no one note wonder.

When it comes to Animal Print, like the ferocious animals the prints are created behind, they go rogue during one season, and then BAM! Attack there’s animal print on the street, runway, stores, you name it. Despite the various prints, textures, and colors; this specific pattern are able to be mixed and matched with other animal prints or other categorical prints; either way you will be a statement piece. This bold print has been placed as a neutral, but it’s not your classic shades of black, grey, and taupe; this neutral can give an outfit the touch of sophistication or sex appeal, donning this with a plain tank top, or a black leather mini, playing with the levels of animal print just mean you’re not afraid to take a walk on the wild side.

Animal print is the Beyonce’ prints, PERIODT! (ALL CAPS ON THE “T”) I mean think about it: plays with volume, uncategorized, and works well with any tone…..just the BEST! The best thing about these bunch of prints, is there are no rules when wearing this print, and that’s why animal print is seasonal.

I hope reading this gives you the urge to just buy, buy, buy; and stock your wardrobe with this profound fierceness.
